Religion and Nationalism in Asia: Perspectives on Japan and the Muslim World Workshop


Convenors: Prasenjit Duara, Duke University Levi McLaughlin, North Carolina State University

In this one-day symposium, participants in two panels will draw on their ethnographic investigations and historical research to stimulate conversation on the Asian religion/politics nexus.

They shall present case studies from Japan, India, Pakistan, Turkey, and other Asian nations to discuss contentious and frequently under-examined dynamics that shape the region.
